There was a very loud group sitting by us that made it very uncomfortable to enjoy our evening. The food was good and reasonably priced, drinks where a little expensive though. Staff were not very welcoming and almost made you feel like you had had enough from the eat all you like menu. I have not had the urge to... More

As a regular both at Yan Woo and a visiter to Malaysia i can recommend the food, worth trying the Malaysian specials as kust as good as in KL. The nasi goring has to be tasted if you enjoy quality food.

Brilliant food both eat in or take away, love the way they do the noodles. Good atmosphere in the restaurant and the staff are always friendly and helpful. Often go in for lunch as they do a great value for money lunch time specials.

Ate in the first time, liked both the food and atmosphere. Tried takeaway service thrice thereafter as we find it difficult to visit a restaurant with 2small kids, but the staff taking orders over the phone were completely unhelpful and on occasion downright obstinate about any small changes to menu, even things like add a little more garlic to the...

Best Chinese restaurant in the south! I've been here a lot of times, I also travel the country for work and eat out a fair bit, so it's safe to say I've eaten in a few Chinese places. Famous for being hit and miss there's always a risk involved with going to them, even when there's good reviews on here.... More

Four of us went for my birthday and got the set menu it was very nice all you can eat. The food is very nice and waitresses are very friendly. Traditional Chinese food at its best! Would highly recommend.
